Hooray! My story was Commended in the Southport Writers short story competition. No money and no publication but my story was in the top 14 of 277 entries so that's an achievement in itself in my book. Very happy. And now I can chance the story in another competition.
Was struggling to get my third story written for the Eurofiction competition tonight but the hit news has buoyed me up...hopefully I'll finish it now!
